I think I'm going to keep this avatar for a little bit longer since I love it so much haha
With all due respect, this is very unfair moderation. The problem is not discussions on the UK region. From how I see it, think the problem is in users constantly shutting down any discussion that does not seem real to them. For starts, it is a leaks and speculations thread. Check the dictionary, speculation is defined as "the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence." There has to be an element of grasping of straws regardless. The thread is not limited to cold hard evidence only so I don't see why they have to dominate the conversation and shut other users down just because they don't like what they see. What's creating a bad atmosphere in the thread is people going "I don't think --- will appear" for the Xth time without substantiating or explaining. That is obstructive and also adds nothing to the conversation. I hope you rethink your position. Thanks.When the thread goes back up, we'd like the "UK as a region" subject to be dropped. It's been done to death at this point and it's just causing arguments and bitterness right now.
